Easy Fixes for Lost Receipts

Lost a receipt? No big deal. Here's how to solve it and a cool way to keep your receipts safe and organised with Receiptor AI.

Why Keep Receipts?

A receipt is proof you bought something. It's important for returning stuff, showing what you bought for work, or when something breaks and you need to fix it under warranty. Without it, you might lose money or can't prove you bought the item.

Finding a Lost Receipt

At Stores: If you lost a receipt, ask the store for help. If you paid with a card, they might find your purchase and print a new receipt.

Online Buys: Check your emails for the receipt or look in your account on the store's website. Most times, your receipt is there.
